Merrill Gardens at Kirkland

Occupying a prime location in the heart of downtown Kirkland, this community offers assisted care with the benefit of access to local services. Retail spaces line the Kirkland Avenue façade and a previously unimproved alley has been transformed into the front door of the community with a turn-about, specialty paving, and extensive landscaping. Wrap-around porches, gracious patios and high quality materials express the residential nature of the building and connect residents with the surrounding community.
